Spurs’ recent run of poor form in the Premier League has whittled away the commanding lead they used to have over the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualifications.
Spurs have not won in four and the Spurs fans have worked themselves into a frenzy at this state of affairs. But this is not the first time this season that Spurs have beaten almost impossible odds. So Spurs fans would do well not to forget the miracle that Mauricio Pochettino and his players achieved in the Champions League.
Lest we all forget, after three games Spurs had only a single point and it looked all over for Spurs in their quest to qualify for the knockout phase. Against Inter and PSV, Spurs dropped points from winning positions and looked well and truly out of the competition.
But somehow, Spurs turned things around beating PSV and Inter at Wembley in very tight affairs and getting the all-important point at Barcelona to edge past Inter in the head-to-head contest.
This minor miracle gave Spurs the platform to blitz past Borussia Dortmund and get into the final eight of the Champions League. In football, anything is possible, as Pochettino would repeat in every press conference, if you believe.
So certainly, Spurs find themselves in a tense battle for top four places now but with eight games left – five at the new stadium – it is well within Spurs’ capability to get enough points to qualify for next season’s Champions League, in 3rd or 4th place. Believe!
COME ON YOU SPURS!!!
